The benefits of lazy parenting. (TV can teach your kids!)

While watching a bit of the fantastic Planet Earth series with the kids this morning, I thought I'd jump-start the excitement at seeing a screen filled with penguins.
Me: Oooh, cool! Look, kids. Penguins!
He who is four: Yes, Daddy. Those are called Emperor Penguins. See their yellow necks?
Apparently, Dora and Diego have taught the child more than I had thought. He was but a learner before, but now he is the teacher.
